St. Augustine Florida
from the wedding and anniversary archives
A valentine collage of some of the couples I’ve had the privilege to photograph on their special days, capturing them loving one another.
The title a bit misguided because of course each and every collection is carefully cataloged and counted.
It was just that there were so many collections.
After going through the museum you felt as if you wanted to get home and start purging stuff. Look around and eliminate the collections in your house.
Lightner Museum in St. Augustine Florida had that effect on my friend Joanne and me.
My favorite collection was the Leonard H. Baer Toaster Collection.
Their website lists the collections.
From typewriters to Tiffany,
Otto Lightner’s collection of fine
and decorative art from the 19th century
is impressive and extensive.
The Museum’s eclectic collection
ranges from a mummy, shrunken heads,
human hair art, cigar labels, buttons,
salt and pepper shakers, to Tiffany glass,
cut glass, porcelain, fine art paintings,
furniture and sculpture all housed
throughout the four floors of
the original Alcazar Hotel.

Flying north this morning. Last Florida sunrise.

Took this shot at home last week
